  • Conclusion: Though it lacks the direction to make itself a pure arcade skateboarding title it has enough humour, self-awareness and interesting gameplay to be worthwhile. If you're prepared to accept the slightly awkward controls and brave new world of its story then Shaun White Skateboarding has much to offer.

3 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Shaun White Skateboarding is quite the romp into a colorless world governed by the nefarious monarchy known at the Ministry. Bordering on the line between ridiculous and slightly serious, this skateboarding title from Ubisoft puts players into the shoes of a Shaun White follower. Shaun is unavailable to play at the start of the loose narrative, specifically because the evil crew running the Ministry has locked up poor Shaun because he's too much of a character for their...
